It's the tenth Star Wars film and the fourth in less than four years.
The second "Star Wars" movie to hit theaters in six months - the shortest window ever between two films in the long-running intergalactic saga - "Solo" was originally expected to gross between $140 million and $150 million over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, according to analysts.
Its worldwide box office gross is really no better as it brought in a massively disappointing $65 million. The Millennium Falcon has been through some tough space battles before, but this is a very disappointing result for the film that's been decently received by critics and many folks who've gone to the theater to see it.

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. John Boyega confirms his character Finn and Daisy Ridley's lead character Rey will be reunited in the film, but J.J.Abrams' script - aside from being under serious lock and key - has to be adapted to fit the direction Rian Johnson took the franchise in The Last Jedi. "They really should have pushed Solo to Christmas". We have a Thor and a Black Panther and an Infinity War coming out in November and February and May and each are massively successful. While Solo establishes Qi'ra's past with Han on their homeworld, Corellia, it also leaves several aspects of her history to be revealed at a later time.
